Original Trident T160 Primary Drive used a 7/16″ Duplex Chain which is no longer available.

Reduced Internal Clearance

While we were designing this product we decided to cure another T160 Cush Drive problem by reducing the clearance between the tips of the vanes and the inside surface of the drive so the rubbers don’t get chopped to pieces prematurely. We produce these using the same inside diameter as a T150 unit which did not have the problem T160 units had.

New unit has much less clearance


We also supply a slightly longer bush and spacer to move the gear lever crossover shaft link slightly closer to the inside of the Primary  Chain Cover and away from the slightly wider sprocket.

‘Swap and Go’ Fitting

Here we demonstrate how easy it is to fit this kit to your T160.

This is such an easy solution to the problem all T160 owners have been up against for some time now it is hard to imagine why Triumph ever changed to a Duplex Chain in the first place!
